Under the authority of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, Public Law 93-288, as amended and Title 44 CFR, the PA Program provides supplemental aid to states and communities to help them recover from major disasters as quickly as possible. Specifically, the program provides assistance for the removal of debris, the implementation of emergency protective measures, and the permanent restoration of public infrastructure. The program also encourages protection from future damage by providing assistance for mitigation measures during the recovery process. Therefore, the purpose of this project is to provide PA funding to MWA to replace the groundwater monitoring wells that were lost during the presidentially declared disaster.
